Berryessa will be an elevated Bay Area Rapid Transit terminus station, scheduled to open fall 2017 or 2018.[1][2][3]

History[edit]

The $2.3-billion extension has two stations, and broke ground in 2012 with completion expected in 2016.[4]

The site is adjacent to the San Jose Flea Market. The 52-acre (21 ha) station will have an elevated island platform, a seven-story parking structure with 1,200 spaces, and a 10-bay bus transit center.[5][6][7] VTA received a $900 million grant for federal funding for the $2.3-billion Silicon Valley Extension in 2012.[8]
